I got this recipe from my 'Bravo! Best of Bridge Cookbook' called Marvelous Morning Muffins located in the breakfast section. These muffins are hearty, healthy and actually taste good. I loved the addition of the grated apple because it added great flavor and made the muffins more moist. The original recipe called for plain yogurt but I didn't have any in the house so I used buttermilk instead but I'm sure using yogurt would be healthier. I've posted the original recipe below becaue it's a great muffin recipe that I would make again as a quick go-to breakfast option.
Marvelous Morning Muffins
It was one of my work friends birthdays this week and she had to work a shift that day with me so I said I would make her anything she wanted. She told me she wanted anything with peanut butter and chocolate in it so I decided to use one of The Pioneer Woman's recipes and followed her instructions for her Cookie Dough and Candy Recipe. The grocery store had all of their Easter chocolates on sale so I decided to take advantage and stock up.
Happy Easter! This week I thought I would make something for the Easter Bunny because he is always filling us with lots of chocolate and treats during this time of the year. I've never made a carrot cake before so I thought I would give it a try especially since I like to eat anything that has cream cheese frosting on it. I got the original recipe from the AllRecipes website called 'Carrot Cake III' but I changed a few things around to my liking and the results were fabulous. The cake was so moist and complimented well with the awesome maple cream cheese frosting. This might be in my top five for favorite cakes, it was so good! Hope you enjoy the recipe and Happy Easter!
It was my mom's birthday this week and I let here choose the type of cake she wanted for her birthday. As I've mentioned before in my previous posts my mom is a big chocoholic, so it wasn't very surprising when she asked for a chocolate cake for her birthday. I have a few good chocolate cake recipes that I have made before but I never like to make the same thing twice so I decided to try out some new recipes for this birthday cake.
